Physics: High Energy, Physics: Instrumentation and Measurement
The Center for Underground Physics (CUP, http://cupweb.ibs.re.kr/html/cup_en/) at the Institute for Basic Science (IBS, http://www.ibs.re.kr/eng.do ) in Daejeon, Korea invites outstanding researchers for tenure-track positions to lead researches on the underground particle astrophysics. At present CUP is conducting dark matter search experiments (KIMS, COSINE), a double beta decay experiment (AMORE), and a neutrino experiment (NEOS). CUP develops low-temperature phonon-scintillation detectors based on MMC sensors for the AMoRE and KIMS-LT and also develops ultra-low background crystal growing techniques. We further conduct R&D for new detection technology for future underground experiments. The center operates Yangyang Underground Laboratory (Y2L) in addition to the ground laboratories at IBS headquarter in Daejeon, and have a plan to construct a new underground laboratory by the year of 2019.
Candidates should have a strong research experience in either ultra-low level radiation measurements and purification or low temperature detector development. The position is for tenure-track researchers at IBS, and the tenure evaluation will be made within six years from the starting year.
Those interested should send their CV, research plan in one page, a publication list featuring three highlights, and three reference letters by Jan 31, 2017. For more information, candidates should contact Yeongduk Kim (firstname.lastname@example.org). Application documents should be sent to Mr. Byungjin Choi (email@example.com). Reference letters should be sent to Mr. Choi directly from the writers.
The Center for Underground Physics (CUP), established as a headquarter research center of Institute for Basic Science (IBS) in 2013 aims to conduct basic researches for beyond standard model physics to deepen our understanding on the origin and structure of the universe. We try to find out if the neutrinos are Majorana or Dirac particles, establish the theory for neutrino mass, and further underst...and the origin of the asymmetry of matter-antimatter in the universe by confirming the neutrinoless double beta decay process (AMoRE experiment). We try to find the weakly interacting massive particles (WIMP), one of most promising candidate for dark matter, by conducting experiments using ultra-low radioactivity crystal detectors (COSINE experiment). In addition, we are developing new detection techniques for more precise experiments than the current ones. CUP operates a 700-meter deep underground laboratory at Yangyang, and also pursue to construct a deeper and wider new underground laboratory. We will produce the worldwide new experimental results by integrating three major techniques, growing ultra-low radioactivity crystals by high-level purification technique, ultra-low temperature detector technique, ultra-low radioactivity measurement technique.
